How to Draw A Bubble Letter W. W is the twenty-third letter of the alphabet and occurs frequently. Oddly enough, he sees the combinations of some different letters.

We pronounce it “double u” and it looks like two letters “V” glued together. This can be confusing, but learning how to write this letter is fairly easy.
While easy to write, it can actually be quite difficult to draw in other styles. In this guide we will explain how to draw a bubble with the letter “W”.
It might be a bit complicated, but we’ve put together 6 easy and fun steps to walk you through the process and show you just how easy it can be.
Additionally, we’ll go through some ways you can colorize your creation and share other fun ideas to try.
How to Draw A Bubble Letter W
When we learn to draw a bubble letter, we always draw it with a pencil first. This can be a good idea when the letter is simple, but is even more recommended when dealing with a complex design.
We therefore strongly encourage you to do so with this letter. You can pencil a capital W and start by drawing it the way you would normally write it.
As we follow the guide, we’ll build the bubble version around it. Whether you draw this guide or not, we can draw the first few lines of your letter.
Earlier we talked about how this letter looks like two V letters and we will draw the V on the left side first. To do this, we draw a small V shape with curls on top.
The reference image shows you what it should look like. So try to replicate it as accurately as possible. Then we can move on to the next step where we complement the design.
Next we draw the left side of the V shape that we started in the previous step. The next line might look simple, but it can be more complicated than you think!
It’s easy to accidentally wave your hand when drawing a longer line, and it can be even more likely if you rush it.
Try to go slow when extending the line we started in the previous step as it goes slightly down. At the base, it is slightly bent to the right.
We can now see half of the W taking shape, but we still have a long way to go! If you are happy with this step, we can move on to the next one.
In this third step of the guide, not only will we finish most of the V on the left side of your W bubble letter, we’ll start with the one on the right.
Where the line ended in the previous step, we’ll create a gradual incline. Approximately in the middle of the letter, it bends down sharply again.
This descends until you reach the base of the letter and then curves again. We can now see the beginning of the second V’s formation, bringing us closer to a complete outline.
In fact, we’ll finish the pattern in the next step, so go ahead and make it when you’re ready!
As mentioned in the previous step, this is where we’ll finish the outline of the W. To do this, we’ll draw the rest of the second V that we started in the previous step.
The line to the far right of the letter is raised a little more before it gets a little curve. Then it falls back towards the middle.
Eventually it rises from that midpoint until it reaches the other line. Your outline for the letter is now complete!
When you break down a design like this into smaller steps, some of the points where the lines converge may not be as smooth as possible, so you can refine each of those points before proceeding.
Also, now would be a good time to erase any pencil lines you drew to help guide your drawing.
They were mainly there as an accompaniment, so we won’t need them again.
The next step in the tutorial is about adding some internal details to the drawing. So let’s continue.
Your W design looks very nice, but something seems to be missing. Right now it looks a bit flat on the page.
We definitely want it to look more like a bubble or balloon, and luckily we have a few ways to achieve that. The first ones will be done in this step and we will finish the effect in the next step.
First, let’s start by drawing some reflective dots on the letters. These can be drawn with some simple little circular shapes at the top tips of the W.
These little shapes make it look like a light is shining and reflecting off the letter. Next we’ll add some small thin lines inside the outline.
They come pretty close to the outline and give the impression that the letter is filled with air. As you can see, these details are simple but effective!
This is how we decided to draw these details, but you can change them up a bit if you want them to look a little different.
You could even add some extra details of your own! These can be fun patterns or other unique details on the letter.
Once you’ve added all the details you want, the last step is to add some colors.
We’ve already mentioned that there are a few ways to make your design appear less flat on the page. In step 5 we started with some details and now we’re going to do it with paint.
We chose a yellow color scheme for our example, but it would work no matter what color you choose. The trick is to use both light and dark shades of your chosen color.
Darker shades blend into lighter ones as shown in our reference. The colors are brightest where the highlights are.
Even if you choose a different color scheme than ours, try to reproduce how we applied the colors in our example. These colors make it look even more like a 3D object.
Some artistic mediums like acrylic paint make the job easier. If you don’t like the 3D look, you can of course make the colors stronger.
Or you could include many different colors instead of limiting yourself to just one color combination!
